Giannis Antetokounmpo is Dr. G

Giannis Antetotkounmpo nailed an incredible finger roll, and we have a new nickname for him.

The Internet has fallen in love with Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Milwaukee Bucks' 19-year-old Greek rookie, and for good reason.

Today, we figured out our nickname for him: Dr. G.

It's easier to spell than "Giannis Antetokounmpo," right?
